Drug Crimes in Chandler

Arizona is notoriously harsh on crimes involving drugs. In Arizona, a medical marijuana card can be the difference between a felony conviction that will remain on your record for the rest of your life, steep fines, and possible prison time—and no charges at all. While Arizona’s criminal code is regarded by many as complex when it comes to drug crimes, there are essentially three categories of drug designations in Arizona: (1) dangerous drugs, (2) narcotic drugs, and (3) marijuana.

When it comes to drug crimes that you may be charged with in Chandler, many factors are taken into consideration when deciding what specific crime to charge, including:

  • The type of drug,
  • The drug classification,
  • The amount of the drug,
  • Paraphernalia present,
  • Prior drug or other criminal convictions,
  • Additional relevant information surrounding the alleged crime.

Drug Crimes Conviction Consequences in Chandler

If convicted of a drug charge, the judge will consider many of these same factors in determining the appropriate sentence. If arrested for a first-time drug crime in Chandler, you may be eligible for special programs that are designed to rehabilitate individuals rather than immediately send them to jail or prison. Some of these programs, including the TASC Diversion Program, can end up resulting in a full dismissal of all charges upon successful completion of the program.
